Scrapbook page for Creative Craft World

Good morning!

It's the first Saturday of April and there's a new challenge at

Take at peek at this month's sketch

I still get butterflies in my stomach when I see a big blank page and wonder how on earth I am going to fill it.

I must admit that although I had reservations about the sketch, once I got started...
I loved it.

 I used DCWV Green Stack papers for this layout.
The coloured brads on each corner are by Papermania and I was trying to give the effect of 
the layout being pinned to the tree background.

The little owl on the branch was cut out from a separate sheet of paper.

 I cut the cloud shape with the Silhouette Cameo and machine stitched around the outside.
The word 'girls' was also cut with the Cameo.

Now, I do have to clarify that Lydia is not in the habit of walking around holding her Dad's hand but she was happy to oblige for the photo :)

'At least', she says
'you can't see my face' lol

We would love you to join in with our challenge and
take a minute to have a look
at the fabulous layouts the other ladies in the Design Team have made :)

Thanks for visiting my blog today.
See you soon.
